It was a great day out in the “jungle” with the 3 elephants and my 2 friends! I was so happy to experience feeding, walking, playing and bathing these gentle “giants”. Toto and his staff were excellent- same with the driver. We were well taken cared of and lots of pics taken :-) I also loved the unexpected snacks after the lovely but tiring experience - the spring rolls and fresh fruits were delicious ! Highly recommended!

A really unique way to get up close to these magnificent animals. Our guide was Superboy, he couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. You get to make food for the elephants and then feed it to them, in addition you will get very muddy when getting in their bathing pool to give them a lovely mud bath before transferring to the ‘shower’ pool to wash them. Both are incredible. The largest part of the day is when you follow where the elephants go for a walk up and down the hills and between trees, they are incredibly agile and don’t care that it’s hard work for you! The lunch provided is good quality and plentiful but watch out for the stampede of the elephants towards your table when they come to eat the leftovers! They are incredibly gentle elephants who seem very happy to interact with the guests. Their keepers also seem to have a very close relationship which was lovely to see. Best trip I’ve been on, very reasonable priced and an amazing experience, thoroughly recommended😀 Tips: Beach shoes are a necessity for the trip as walking boots/trainers would be ruined. Swim suit Change of clothes Plastic bag for dirty clothes Towel Do the full day tour, we did and it was great😀😀

We did the full day tour with rafting, elephant bathing, and waterfall. The guide never introduced himself and was quite unfriendly. When I asked him about the agenda for the day, he said "Didn't you read about it before you signed up?" And provided no other information. The lunch food was really good. Overall, things were run smoothly, however the guide's poor attitude soured the experience.

Took a half day afternoon trip yesterday. Superb brilliant fantastic two hours in the company of five amazing elephants with guys who obviously love and care for them. The walk through the jungle is something I will never forget. Following the elephants wherever they wanted to go. You can clearly see the affection between man and beast. Can not recommend this trip highly enough. Pity I can only give 5 stars. Thank you.

After a 2hr minivan journey we arrived in a place by the river where we started our excursion with 5km rafting. The level was super easy because the season and we enjoyed most the surrou nding. When we first arrived at the sanctuary we were able to feed the elephants with bananas and sugar cane, we were all supplied with a large basket of food for them, and the elephants were such beautiful, gentle giants, sometimes they served themself and it was funny. Next we were given clothes in the local tribes design and we wandered with the elephants to where they wanted to trek, along the rivers and through the jungle, the elephants could do their own thing and we were surprised at just how agile these magnificent creatures were, they were climbing to the top of hills to grab sugar cane and anything else they wanted to munch on. They guide Jimmy was very professional and he promptly replied to any question from the crew. After a lunch with pad Thai and fruit the baby elephants run to finish everything we left from the fruit swepting the table. We finally went into the water to bath them, it was an amazing experience. Before we left we said the last goodbye to them which came very close again before to run away through the forest. A truly magical experience, highly recommend.
